More song lyrics... [Aug. 26th, 2003|04:20 pm]
[Current Mood |boredbored]
[Listening to |Toad the Wet Sprocket--Coil]

This is "Throw it all Away" by Toad the Wet Sprocket, and it really sums up how materialistic our society makes each of us. And it shows the world in a whole new perspective, which is always nice. Anyway, I heard it today and just thought I'd share.

Take your cautionary tales
Take your incremental gain
And all the sychophantic games
And throw ’em all away

Burn your tv in your yard
And gather ’round it with your friends
And warm your hands upon the fire
And start again

Take the story you’ve been told
The lies that justify the pain
The guilt the weighs upon your soul
And throw ’em all away

Tear up the calendar you’ve bought
And throw the pieces to the sky
Confetti falling down like rain
Like a parade to usher in your life

Take the dreams that should have died
The ones that kept you lying awake
When you should’ve been all right
And throw ’em all away

With the time I waste on the life I never had
I could’ve turned myself into a better man

’cause there ain’t nothing you can buy
And there is nothing you can save
To fill the hole inside your heart
So throw it all away
Won’t fill the whole inside your heart

Help me empty out this house
The wool I’ve gathered all these days
And thought I couldn’t do without
And throw it all away

I love Toad. It's too bad that they broke up, because Glen Phillips is one of the few songwriters that completely speaks to my soul in everything that he says.

Yeah, me too :) And I completely agree--he really speaks to me as well. His songs are so beautiful, and so true.
